LindaGHill arrived again with our prompt: “Welcome to our final combination Daily 2023 Just Jot it January Prompt and the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt for SATURDAY, JANUARY 28th! Where has January gone? It’s flown by for me.

For those of you joining SoCS for the first time, it’s a little different than the other prompts in that it’s not always a whole or single word. If you’re joining in from JusJoJan, don’t want to write stream of consciousness style, no worries. It’s up to you! If you do want to try it, please check out the rules below. It’s fun! Here’s your Saturday prompt:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan the 28th and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “throw in the towel.” Use the phrase “throw in the towel” somewhere in your post. Enjoy!

Throw in the Towel

To give up to concede
When it is too difficult
To slow your pace give up the lead
When the going gets tough
Shrug your shoulders and say enough
When you can no longer duck the punches.
The gym implodes you can do no more crunches.
That job has taken so long it makes you scowl.
Give up, give in, throw in the towel.

    Or not. Don’t throw it in, let it dry again, and have another shot 🤗

    I’ve not heard much of the band Adema but they do sound really good.

    When you throw inthe towel all you have left is a facecloth. Super not you poem, Willow.

    I might have to throw in the towel on Streams of Consciousness as I am lost to what is required.

    Well done, though extremely hard to read (colour choices)
